Total Time

Prep/Total Time: 15 min.


6 servings

Carrots are my favorite vegetable, so I'm always searching for different ways to prepare them. This festive dish is quick to make and nicely complements the turkey.


  • 12 medium carrots, julienned
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 2/3 cup orange juice
  • 5 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 5 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 tablespoon grated orange zest
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt


  1. In a large saucepan, bring 1 in. of water and carrots to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 3-5 minutes or until crisp-tender.
  2. Meanwhile, in another saucepan, combine the cornstarch and orange juice until smooth. Stir in the remaining ingredients. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Drain carrots; transfer to a serving bowl. Pour glaze over carrots; gently stir to coat.
<B>Editor's Note:</B> Two 10-ounce packages of shredded carrots can be substituted for julienned carrots.
